Do they? VerizonBusiness's solution was $3250US/month so ~$90USk over
2yrs. Arbor, I think, for a TMS + collectors was +100k.

There are decent outsourced solutions, that move the problem out of
your network, scrub traffic as requested, give you the ability to send
traffic there on-demand (without calling the provider) and actually do
work. All at a cost that's more than reasonable if your business
depends upon the Internets.
